. c-span: i counted 27 different fbi files the you've gotten into in the back that you list. what value have they been to this book and how would they be different, how would the book be different? >> guest: i think they are good primary material part and the invasive wiretaps ra biographical material, and there are many files there but these are the ones in which the basic primary material and fbi material gathered at the ground level tends to be i think very reliable on the people that have been wiretapped like clarence jones who show in these conversations. when it get massaged through the headquarters and put to political use the materials to get distorted but there is nothing better than a verbatim wiretap transfer of somebody's telephone life. that's very revealing and often were showing quite the opposite character of the wiretaps are premised on in the and in fact what you will get is somebody talking about going to jail in the freedom movement and quite the noble character. c-span: how hard is it to get them? >> guest: not hard to get they are in the fbi reading room not
surprise was that j. edgar hoover and his fbi's campaign to destroy king politically, at least, was far more vicious, was far more relentless, and cruel, and i could imagine that public officials in the united states would do. how did i come to that conclusion? after a two or three year battle with the fbi and with my friends in the lbj library, part of the national archives, i was finally able to put together a mosaic of hundreds of fbi memos that went to the president. i saw how the president reacted to them, and didn't react to them. and even though great reporters have covered this story well, starting in '75 with the church hearings, i was appalled about that, and i don't want to be total alarmist, but when i see what the fbi has been empowered to do again, in investigating citizens, i have great pause. >> time for a few more questions. [inaudible] >> i changed my mind on really the central idea of the book. when i started out, a lot of very well-meaning dedicated white house aides and johnson cabinet officials told me that the president despised martin luther king, and why was i d
, and it to look at the medical records of the students. and the administrator that he meant the fbi, which set new perfectly well that was the impression he was giving. he used to wear that pressed their cut in the trench coat that reporters just like fbi man because it afforded them a certain amount of protection sometimes in the field. anyway, he was given access to those medical records, and he showed that most of the students were wounded running away in the back. there were shot in the back or missiles of the feet. it was important break in a story to disprove what the troopers had been saying, that they had to find that the students had opened fire on them and have thrown molotov cocktails. so that is what i mean by pushing the envelope a little bit. >> he to five years after that he would tell that story on himself. >> that sounds like a saint to me. [laughter] >> i think later it would have been considered inappropriate to do such things when we writing her book. he was reluctant to go back and knowledge of hit and that. now he has done it again, and glad to see that. ambassador young, the
the fbi to anonymous e-mails that led to the downfall of david petraeus. jill kelley gives an interview to howard kurtz. kelley went to the fbi when she got harassing e-mails traced back to paula broadwell. the investigation revealed that petraeus was having an affair. and then it looked into jill kelley and john allen. messages were described as potentially inappropriate. it was a big scandal. lots to get to this morning. howard kurtz, whose exclusive interview with jill kelley just posted on the daily beast. >> good morning. >> she talks to you black mail, threats. lay those out for us. specifically what was being black mailed? what kind of threats was jill kelley getting from paula broadwell? >> a very emotional interview. jill kelley talked about the nightmare her life has become and everything changed when they started receiving those anonymous e-mails we know were from paula broadwell. she used words, jill kelley, like black mail and extortion. she said she was terrified. wouldn't tell me the exact nature of the threats. i didn't get to see the e-mails. she felt she had no choice
be commissioner of major league baseball or fbi director. she was considered for that latter post before president obama picked white, one of this generation's best prosecutors, to police wall street. the first woman u.s. attorney for the southern district of new york, white led prosecution teams that convicted mob boss john gotti, a vicious mob killer who had escaped prosecution by tampering with juries. white kept her jury anonymous and sequestered. she built the best set of terrorism prosecutors in america, convicting the blind sheik for conspiracy to bomb the united nations and other new york landmarks. she also convicted ramsey youseff for the 1993 world trade center bombing. and she was on osama bin laden's trail before anyone, indicting the al qaeda leader for the deaths of 18 u.s. soldiers in somalia in 1993, charges that later included the 1998 bombings embassies in kenya and tanzania. >> so i'd say that's a pretty good run. you don't want to mess with mary jo. mary jo does not intimidate easily. and that's important. because she has a big job ahead of her. the s.e.c. played a critical ro
the right. >> yjackie robinson, muhammad ali, martin luther king was bugged by the f.b.i. and all kinds of rumors were spread about him and the demonizing of barack obama falls into that power. and one of the things that he did today was place history, in the history of civil rights and the history of progressive movements into the mainstream of america, you know, traszi ingtr back to the declaration of independence. >> it's interesting to go back to what the dating is here. here's myrlie evers, the widow of medgar evers. ole miss, alabama and the wondrous thing, of course, the wife of the attorney general -- by the way, we just lost james woods -- james hood the other day. he died. and he was one of the two people who were integrated, basically, at gun point with george wallace standing in the door back then. in alabama. >> yeah, i mean, those were incredible times. and you and i have some recollection of those times. >> but not the president. >> no, he doesn't. he doesn. he was, at best, a baby when these things were happening. it's -- but he -- but he knows the history. even if he h
to be answered. as hillary clinton said today, the fbi is still working on the investigation. director mueller was in libya and tunisia recently. i get disappointed when people give half of the story. the guy has been released. as hillary clinton said today, yes, but he's under constant surveillance within tunisia and following the rule of law and as more evidence becomes available, they are prepared to act on him again. i think as hillary clinton said dramatically, our focus here now is to bring these guys to justice but also to understand benghazi in the context of what's happening over the last few days to understand the evolving threat from al qaeda and to deal appropriately with that. >> dana loesch there were phone calls today that they would have been fired. do you agree with that? >> there were a lot of missteps here. we do know that you had said that there was a whisper of questioning susan rice and secretary of state clinton. i don't think asking questions on why talking points were changed, we know for sure the u.s. intelligence report came out and said extremists that led the attac
.c. police force, secret service, fbi, and other agencies. bob orr takes a closer look at the security behind this ceremony. >> reporter: at union station, tsa viper security teams are checking trains and passengers. in a show of force designed to be a deterrent. >> if someone walks in and sees a group of officers and turns around immediately and leaves the station, that's a good indication that perhaps they have something to hide. >> reporter: not all security is so obvious. these two men with backpacks are undercover behavioral detection officers working in tandem with uniformed patrols at rail stations and airports. along d.c.'s waterfront coast guard fast boats are increasing surveillance runs. this is a floating command center. for 48 hours surrounding the inaugural time frame these waters around washington will be closed as more than 20 coast guard and police boats conduct patrols of 20 miles of shore watch. and at the edges of the restricted zone, the coast guard is watching for any suspect boaters. >> if they're in key specific areas or near critical
accountable? >> time is running out. when i talk to the fbi, had the clear sense the game was over. now statute of limitations is running. although there are some instances where it extends as much as ten years. so there is still time to prosecute. and just recently, we've seen the new york attorney general file a lawsuit against jpmorgan, bear stearns for fraud. they didn't name individuals. they didn't target individuals. and it's a civil case. but the attorney general, eric sneiderman thinks that perhaps there could be in the future some criminal charge s brought. but we haven't seen it yet. >> this could be the tip of the iceberg, this documentary. it's going to be an eye-opener to a lot of people. a lot of people will be wondering why no one is in jail. martin smith, we'll have you back after this plays a few times. i think you'll get a loft lot of reaction out of it. that's "the ed show." the rachel maddow show starts right now. >> good evening, my friend. it was really fun to cover the inauguration in washington with you. >> yes, it was. but my legs were getting sore sitting ther
really cut spending is p by doing things like firing people at the fbi. because veteran spending is going to increase automatically. president obama wants to spend more on education. that's tough. so these cuts go into effect, but they might find very quickly that it's very difficult to actually implement them. >> last thing here to you, chris, we're hearing about a couple of senators not going to be -- not going to seek re-election. talking about harkin, saxby chambliss. chambliss cited the gridlock in washington as part of the reason him wanting to step away. get your reaction to both of these men not seeking re-election. and also what are your thoughts on chambliss actually citing what's happening in washington as part of the reason for him wanting to get out of there? >> i think what we're seeing right now is a generational change in washington. chambliss and harkin and guys like that are part of that change. and it's interesting particularly in chambliss's case as you point out he does cite the partisan gridlock. but he's also part of that old republican guard. he's very close friend
've got the fbi, the alcohol, tobacco, firearms bureau and others converging on the scene and we're told there are about five different local agencies surrounding the woods there looking for that one shooter who apparently has not been identified. as ed reported, this sounds very different, wolf, from the types of situations we've seen aurora, colorado, newtown, connecticut, and other places where one individual went in indiscriminately and started shooting. this appears to be an altercation between two people in a school setting which makes it sound like more like the things we've seen at public schools and major metropolitan areas and some other universities where police have to start asking questions, was it drug-related, was it gang-related, was this a score settling of any type? these are the types of questions. and congresswoman sheila jackson lee of texas who represents this area, harris county, texas, was asked that question and sort of restated it on air a while ago but we doubled back to her office and they told us, the fact of the matter is, the school does not have, to their
's currently at the justice department. she was fbi director mueller's chief of staff. she also worked on the enron task force helping to prosecute some of the people in the enron case. you know who else did? the current white house counsel. so they have sort of a women's -- they are sort of -- you can talk about a boys club, they are a women's power club. they prosecuted some of those men with enron and came up through the ranks with alaina kagan. >> real quickly here, i know there are three recess appointments the president made and the supreme court has now said they are unconstitutional. what does that mean for the white house? he made these appointments while the senate was out during recess. how is the white house responding? >> reporter: we have asked them for comment and let me check my blackberry to see if it's coming in. it now has to go to the supreme court again. this will probably go to the supreme court and be battled out there. the president can make recess appointments when the senate is out of session. at the time the president made these recess appointments, the senat
. will it happens the assault weapons ban. >> no, here is the reason why. it was not renewed in 2004. the fbi and law enforcement officers saying this did not work. what we know is that since the lifting of that ban you've seen crime go down. people, many times, bill, what ends up happening, you get the gun-free zones and you get guns in the hand of criminals and you're right, there's a lot of evil in this world but the assault weapons ban is not the way to fix it. bill: okay. on the assault, let me come back to fixing that in a moment. what about a background check? could that pass? >> well, background checks already are happening and, even, you know, some people will say, there's a gun show loophole but you know what? the most of the your vendors at the gun shows are licensed vendors. they are already doing those background checks there is a very small percentage, i think it is about four or 5% of the guns that are transferred into individual to individual without background checks. bill: so much has been proposed publicly. does any of that pass now in your view? >> i don't think you're goi
to light after jill kelly, who lives in the house over there, contacted the fbi about what she called threatening e-mails. throughout all of this, jill kelly has remained silent, until now. socialite jill kelly was thrown into the media spotlight last october as the story of general david petraeus and his affair with biographer paula broadwell unfolded. kelly was described in the media as the other, other woman. now she's telling her side of the story in an interview with a reporter for the daily beast, describing the ordeal as a living nightmare. >> jill kelly seemed to me to be someone who didn't quite know what hit her. she doesn't think she did anything wrong. her life has been totally turned upside down. >> kelly came to him to the interview to try to clear her name. she said she was terrified last summer when her husband, scott, read a mysterious e-mail on her joint account. >> she didn't know that these anonymous e-mails were from paula broadwell or even a woman. they terrified her. they were, in her view, full of threats and blackmail. >> reporter: kelly describes her relation
